Was Heath Ledger Courted By Scientology?

Tess Lynch, who just happens to be the child of Jane Curtin, asks the Heath Ledger question we all knew was coming:

I’m preoccupied with whether he was being courted by The Cult We Dare Not Name (Theresa Duncan, anyone?)

Seems highly unlikely. Although the woman who found him made 4 calls to Mary-Kate Olson, before she called 911. (In an eerie vein, Jeremy Blake called his mother, before he called 911.)

Lynch blogs at The Recording, which is highly readable.

And Vermont Senator/Batman fanboy Patrick Leahy has an onscreen cameo in a scene with Ledger and Christian Bale in the upcoming Batman movie.
